Four-Star RB Interested in Heels

Looking to add an elite tailback to their recruiting class, North Carolina has garnered the attention of Chris Jordan, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound four-star prospect from Nashville (Tenn.) Brentwood.

"I haven't done my research on North Carolina, but I'm interested," said Jordan. "I've heard good things about the school, but I really haven't done any research."

Apparently, UNC is in the same boat as other interested schools.

"I don't really have a favorite school right now," said Jordan. "I'm just doing my research of colleges to figure out where I want to go and where's my fit."

Much of Jordan's current research is conducted through the Internet where he explores depth charts and looks up graduation rates. He also tries to be inquisitive when speaking to college coaches.

North Carolina sent assistant coach Charlie Williams to Nashville to do some research of his own.

"I had [Coach Williams] come by the school last week and I talked to him," said Jordan. "He really didn't say much, he just wanted to put a name with a face. He talked to my coaches after I left."

While the official paperwork hasn't arrived in the mail, Jordan believes UNC might have extended a scholarship offer.

"I talked to Coach Montgomery and I think they might have offered me," said Jordan.

Currently, Jordan owns 12 scholarship offers. Highlighting his list of offers are Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, and Virginia Tech.

During the spring, Jordan attended Mississippi's Junior Day and also unofficially visited Alabama.

Over the summer, Jordan plans on camping at Clemson and Alabama. He is also contemplating a trip to Chapel Hill.

"I want to make a trip [to UNC] this summer, but it all depends on my schedule and how much interest the coaches actually have in me," said Jordan.

During his senior football season, Jordan said he will establish a list of favorite schools. However, he isn't sure when he'll make a verbal commitment.

Jordan hopes his senior campaign goes a lot better than his junior season. In the fourth game last year, Jordan suffered torn cartilage in his left knee forcing him to miss the remainder of the season.

In not even four full games of play, Jordan rushed for 487 yards and five touchdowns on 68 rushes (7.2-yard average).

According to Jordan, his knee is now at 100-percent and he doesn't expect any future problems with the knee.
